What an age we live in... a city falls after a huge battle, and people are amazed to see dead bodies and broken buildings.

Tourists ...

People live with blinkers on. It has been a long close quarter fight. Of course buildings are going to crumble and people die.

And that my friend is the difference between liberating and occupying
Of course, every Soviet single soldier did it. And of course, let's totally forget about the context. Because the Germans also invaded Canadian soil and massacred the relatives of these Canadian soldiers, right?

Fighting is cool when there's little to nothing personal involved, and the brutality of fighting is not immediately determined by your post-war goals of either occupying or liberating a territory. You are essentially comparing apples to oranges here, along with making another to mention of the "evil Russians".

And when ISIS occupied Aleppo,where was the BBC ?

When ISIS was throwing people from the roofs,where were the crocodile tears from the BBC, WP,CNN, NYT?

And when ISIS was crushing POW's with tanks, where was the UN? Where was the pope ?

And when ISIS ordered children to behead people, where was Obama ?


Band of hypocrites .

The behavior of the Red Army can't be defended. From Katyn to the advance into Europe it was appalling. Before the Germans invaded, and after.

Which is why all the 'liberated' countries are dragged away the monuments to the Red Army you guys left behind, and raising monuments to the local heroes who opposed the Red Army.

But the Red Army is gone, along with the evil that it served. The world improves.

The Red Army had nothing to do with Katyn - that was the NKVD
As for the rest:

THIS THREAD HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE RED ARMY, THE SOVIET ARMY OR WORLD WAR II. DISCUSS THE THREAD TOPIC OR GO SOMEPLACE ELSE
